Prepare pie crust first:

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups blanched almond flour

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup grapeseed oil

2 tablespoons light agave nectar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.  In a medium bowl, whisk together grapeseed oil, agave nectar, and vanilla extract.  Stir the wet ingredients into the almond flour mixture until thoroughly combined.  Press the dough into a 9 1.2 inch or deep –dish pie pan.

Let ice cream rest on the counter for a few minutes prior to scooping it into the cooled pie crust.  After filling, place it back in the freezer and allow ice cream to set.  Let it rest on the counter before serving.  ENJOY!

About emashita

Nearly two years ago, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes. My life didn’t change much, but in April of 2011, I became very ill and was diagnosed with full on diabetes. It was a bit of a wake-up call for me and I quickly changed my eating habits. I scoured the internet for information about what to eat and what to avoid when it comes to a diabetic lifestyle. I cut out refined sugars, glutens, rice and pretty much all starches. After 90 days, I went in for blood work and was told that I was free and clear of diabetes. To live a healthy lifestyle inside and out is challenging and rewarding all at once. I started this blog to share my delicious (e is for Emilie and mashita means delicious in Korean) life with friends & family, and of course with new friends that stumble upon my site.
